The Radiology Rollers are back on their bikes! The Radiology team from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust raised over £2,500 when they completed Cyclone24 in February and now they've set their sights on Cycle Live Nottingham! They're raising money for paediatric imaging equipment as part of our Big Appeal for Nottingham Children's Hospital.
As Cycle Live official charity partner, we have a limited number of FREE PLACES available for our fundraisers. Visit our website for more details: www.nottinghamhospitalscharity.org.uk/events/cycle-live-nottingham/
Yesterday we were lucky to be joined by four fabulous volunteers from PKF Cooper Parry who spent the day at Hayward House, the specialist palliative care centre at City Hospital.
Huge thanks to Louise, Josh, Stacey and Andy who worked so hard sorting and storing all of the craft and activity supplies for day therapy patients - you have truly done wonders!
The team from Rotary Club of Nottingham set off from John O'Groats this morning. Good luck guys, we're so proud of you and so grateful for everything you are doing! Rotary Club of Nottingham - John O'Groats to Lands End
If you've got the Robin Hood gear, we've got a very unique idea... We're on the hunt for a team of Robin Hoods to join our Big QMC Abseil on 9th June!
Put on your tabard, take a deep breath, and join us at the top of the Queen's Medical Centre. You'll abseil 85ft down one of the UK's highest hospitals and raise money for your chosen ward/department, all whilst looking like a Nottingham hero!

This weekend our brilliant friends at the Rotary Club of Nottingham set out to do something truly AMAZING...
Led by Chairman Paul Jones, they are attempting to cycle from John O'Groats to Lands End in just 10 days! That's 903 miles! In 10 days! And it's all to raise money for our Big Appeal for Nottingham Children's Hospital and to celebrate the Club's 100th year.
Here's a picture of Paul stretching his legs at our Robin's Big World Record event on Bank Holiday Monday. It has been such a joy working with these guys and they are on course to raise a huge total for the Big Appeal through this challenge. We are so so grateful.
You can follow the progress of the team at https://www.facebook.com/rcnottingham100jogle/ but please join us now in saying a huge GOOD LUCK to them all!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Pleasley Stags Girls FC who donated £619.80 to our Adult Intensive Care Unit this week from their Charity football match in memory of Jackie Page.
Jackie’s daughters Amy and Jemma arranged the match with their team, raising money through stalls, tombolas, raffles, and lots more! The day was even more special as the team played in their brand new kit which was badged up with a picture of Jackie.
This is a fantastic example of a community event which has celebrated the life of a loved one, bringing together friends, family and the local community in support of a good cause. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make it happen!
